Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 379
She pursed her lips and strode toward the door.
“I don’t know if it means investing in Wanda,” he drawled when she was at the door, “but I gave Zoe three hundred million.”
“Three hundred million? He gave Zoe three hundred million?!” she thought.
“Wasn’t it one hundred and fifty-five million?” she blurted out.
He chuckled. “So you have been keeping an eye on what has happened between Zoe and I. I did give her one hundred and fifty-five million, but I gave her another one hundred and fifty-five million the day before yesterday. She had performed surgery on Shea twice, and I’m paying her seventy-five million for each operation she performed.”
Avery clenched her fists. Due to the surgeries, Zoe had gotten an insane amount of money from Elliot. She had given all three hundred million to Wanda.
“How ironic! This is the most ironic thing I’ve ever seen. Nothing is as ridiculous as this, because I was the one who did those surgeries! This means that I have just given Wanda three hundred million! Haha! I want her d**d! How could I give her money?” she thought.
Elliot noticed her tensing, and she was shivering slightly.
He got dressed swiftly and strode toward her. When he was finally next to her, he noticed that she was as pale as a ghost, and all the light had disappeared from her eyes.
“Avery, what’s wrong?” He grabbed onto her wrist and asked.
She took a deep breath, before shaking off his hand.
“I am a joke, Elliot Foster!” She lifted her chin as she tried her best to hold back her tears. “I shouldn’t have been merciful! I will never show any mercy to you or anyone around you!”
Her vice-president was right. Every penny that Elliot had given Zoe was a knife directed at her because Zoe and Wanda were a team.
Avery’s heart ached at the thought that she had wronged herself and her mother.
“What are you talking about, Avery?!” He grabbed onto her wrist once again and scowled.” Are you angry that I have given money to Zoe? Or do you think that I’ve given too much?”
“It’s up to you how much you want to give her!” she screamed.
“So, it is because of that.” He chuckled and said, “If you can cure Shea, I would give you however much you want! But can you? Can you cure Shea?!”
He raised his voice.
“No! I won’t cure her!” Avery said coldly despite the heartache, “I would never help her even if I could!”
Stung by her words, he flung her arm away. He knew that Avery did not want him and had never been impressed by his wealth.
Avery stepped out of the depressing room. She did not go back to the venue. After exiting the hotel, she caught a taxi and gave the driver her house address.
She could not handle anything properly with the emotional state she was in, so she needed to be alone.
In the evening, the children had returned from school and were surprised to see Avery at home.
“Mom! Why are you home from work so early today?” Layla and Hayden walked toward her, and Layla showed Avery her finger.
“Mommy, they took our blood today and it hurts so much…” Layla tried to find the wound on her finger and failed miserably.
Avery blew at her finger and said, “Let Mommy blow it, and it won’t hurt anymore.”
“Mommy, Hayden had his blood taken as well. Blow his finger for him as well,” Layla grabbed her brother’s hand and showed it to Avery.
Avery’s eyes gleamed with surprise, and she asked, “I thought you didn’t like people touching you?”
